Neither.Apparently it's to do with volatility.Probably measured in joules per second,bit like power but I'm sure you already knew that....

Any way,my bike woke up sick yesterday ,so I'm sulking.Sudden shit carburation syndrome with 1.5 Yeehaaa factor above 4500 rpm and rough cough splutter 0.25 Yeehaaa factor off idle to the start of the new sweet zone.
I suspect I've got shit rubber syndrome as well,now.Jeez, it comes on quick just like that.

Preparing to depart to CheezeConsin a week from now but not on my K75S... but with my Grandson.


Off to Monroe to visit with family and take in the beer, cheese, beef (my best friend is a beef farmer) and sweetcorn out of a truck bed at the local gas station. 


Next year on the Brick!


Thanks for sharing the pics.

So I’m thinking my iPhone was inverted... removed a couple times to edit unsuccessfully... I’m thinking Johnie has a Macro of some sort to flip any image of him... seems apropos somehow.  I’ll edit it tomorrow.  Gnight.

Herseyb- Looks like we prowl the same byways.  Ive been Rolling a consistent 65miles per day in the chee between home work in Mineral Point and school in Fennimore.  I note also we have similar taste in k bikes, how bout that.  So Im restoring a K1100 that will need tires next spring.  Michelin Pilot radials look good but 6 year old make date.  What did you buy/try?  What's the mapping app.  Cheers.

When I lived in Madison, way back in the 20th century, a big Saturday was to drive out to Mineral Point to eat pasties.

Yum, Pasties!!  Looks like you can still get them, too.  My gal and I drove out to Muscoda last weekend up rte 39 passing through Mineral Point.  Both of us decided we had to go back on the moto.

 RCG - looks like I am a bit east of ya, halfway between Belleville and Brooklyn on 92.  I basically always ride west northwest to hit the driftless.  Lately most of my miles have been to work in Madison and back though.

I am planning a Belleville -> Potosi -> Wyalusing (day 1), Wyalusing -> Dubuque -> Savannah/Sabula (day 2), Savannah -> Galena -> Belleville  2Up camping trip for early October if the weather holds out.  Should be a good loop with some great southern driftless motorcycle roads.

The tires I got are the Michelin Pilot 3 radials.  Happy with them so far @ 150 miles.

Used to live in Manitowoc, Kewaunee, and Two Rivers during nuclear plant construction.  A great lifestyle there.  Miss my curds, whey, and real string cheese.
